Don't use overtraining as an excuse for your reduced training volume or intensity, because this often holds you back from reaching functional overreaching which is essential for any training program.
There is a need for functional overreaching, accompanied by a temporary decrease in performance but it was enough of a stimulus to result in an eventual adaptation and training response—supercompensation (why we train). Overtraining on the other hand, this subsequent decrease in performance can last many months and even years and can be accompanied by increased rate of injuries, illnesses, fatigue, higher levels of cortisol etc. (must avoid)... (Kreher 2016)
Multiple factors could contribute to overtraining such as not getting enough sleep, not eating enough etc. When it comes to your training though, Charles Poliquin discusses how the different types of overtraining (parasympathetic or sympathetic) can be associated with either excessive volume or excessive intensity.
➡️overtraining caused by excessive intensity= increases sympathetic nervous system activity (poor sleep, feel like you can't relax/irritability, appetite reduction)
➡️ overtraining caused by excessive volume= increased parasympathetic nervous system activity (increased appetite, fatigue/tiredness)
🗣🗣The amount of work it takes for an individual to reach overtraining varies from person to person. However! to do your best to avoid it, incorporating ‼️periodization‼️ into your program is critical. This way, you can plan to reach periods of functional overreaching while avoiding overtraining.
Fit, fierce, and ready to grind this week. 🏋️♀️

Beauuuutiful Sunday off today, did some yoga this morning and a little out door cardio 🌞 Now time to BBQ, drink some beers, and enjoy the rest of the day chiiiillin :') I hope everyone's having as good of a weekend eating all foods, spending time with people you care about, and staying safe out there! 🍻
Baby got back 😂 these cupping marks look wild but I’m so happy with progress as of late especially in my back. Keep progressing! Also sorry for the inconsistency as of late. Really just been enjoying keeping my head down and getting at it. More content coming soon ⏳

This weekend has been so much fun and a little reminder to enjoy every little bit of your life 💛
This may be a place where I post things to keep me accountable to my health but sometimes it's nice to remember that health is about so much more than physicsl fitness. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so eat the food, buy the dress, say YES, find a way to move that actually feels good & love every moment of your life 👌

T-minus 9 days until holiday time!!! Nothing gets me ‘shredded’ like a good fasted sprint session.
I like to do 40 secs on 20 secs rest for 10 rounds increasing the speed by .5 km per hr. Starting at 14.5, then 15, 15.5 and so on until 18.5. This machine goes up to 20 so I’ll try again later in the week.
